Unlike a lot of people, I love technology and gadgets no matter whom it is from: Apple, RedHat, Microsoft or Google.

iPad is a great device and has been extremely useful for me. Here is how I use it on a daily basis:

1. When I wake up I use it to check emails and the latest news.

2. When I am driving my daughter to school, she uses it to watch kids movies or educational stuff on the way.

3. At lunch I use it to read books even when I am eating out waiting at a restaurant to eat food (when I go alone for a quick lunch).

4. When my daughter goes to some dance or swimming class and I have to wait (4 times a week), I use my iPad to read or watch and listen to podcasts.

5. I use it a lot to watch video podcasts and listen to audio podcasts whenever I have spare time. Educational Material available on iTunesU is simply amazing. That alone makes it worthwhile.

6. At night I read books to my daughter with iPad. An e-book is far more convenient and easy to manage. Also, kids just love the interactive books.

The number one great thing about iPad is convenience: it is light weight, it's easy to carry anywhere, it has no lid that needs to be opened, and it's always on (no boot required).

Of course, the same will apply to similar class of devices (I am excluding netbooks as they are not similar they are not as convenient as an iPad).
